The total number of available Retail Liquor licenses granted by the City of Minot is limited by the city’s population in Section 5-16 of the City of Minot Code of Ordinances. The official 2020 United States Census determined that Minot has a population of 48,377 residents, meaning the City can issue 32 Retail Liquor Licenses. The City currently has 28 Retail Liquor Licenses in operation, so the City Council, in its sole discretion, may award four four (4) additional licenses.
It is recommended the City Council adopt a policy to conduct the sale of Retail Liquor Licenses, approve the advertisement and bid specifications and authorize staff to award the licenses to the highest qualified bidders.
